2015 is considered a very ripe year in the Northern Rhone. Most seem to think it a great vintage but some old school drinkers have issue with the ripeness. There is no right answer but plan accordingly. This is on the big and ripe side. Purple in color, a thin line of ruby at the rim. Great nose of black raspberries, bacon fat, and slight grilled meats. On the palate, this is deep with tons of black raspberry fruit. Medium tannins. It unwinds in the glass. It won't peak for at lest a decade and be good for at least another after that. Still, today it is delicious.
